. ♪ >>> we are counting down to tonight's obama/romney face-off. last night we got a late night debate preview. >> yeah, it's a big deal. i understand they'll have fact checkers standing by in case either candidate happens to say something factual. i don't think it's going to happen. >> everyone is looking for some kind of sign as to who will win the debate. in fact, one group of researchers is saying presidential candidates who blink less during a debate where more likely to win the election. or as michele bachmann put it, maybe i can get back in this thing? hey! there you go. >> the presidential debates will be streamed live on youtube. anyone going to watch it on youtube? yea. as a result, both candidates have been busy learning how to dance gangnam style. >> mitt romney was asked live on "with kelly and michael" who he liked better, snooki or honey boo boo. snooki heard about it but she a decided who she want. she wants to stick a few more facts in her head and roll them around. i didn't realize snooki was tall enough to vote, to be honest. you should be allowed to vote or be on en
by both campaigns. mitt romney down playing it, barack obama downplaying it, but the american public shows that they believe barack obama will have the edge tonight. of course, we can say what we want to about the poll numbers and what the american public will see, but we won't know the answer until 11:00 this evening. >> mark preston down in denver, can you feel the electricity already? >> absolutely. it is early here, john, but it is starting to ramp up, no doubt. >> great. we'll talk to you again. >>> look for a couple corks beyond what they just say in delivery tone and body language are as important to voters as the substance of what the candidate is saying, to some voters. here's what to watch for as body language experts say when mitt romney is agitated, his arms fail around a bit. and president obama has a tendency to go on and on. he's long-winded and both candidates do well when they are standing at podiums. now in the next half hour of "early start," we'll break down what each candidate has to establish with richard socarides and erick erickson. >> i'm a little nervous for them.
't double down on trickle down. >> romney: i said the president's vision is trickle-down government. and i don't think that's what america believes in. i see a prosperity that comes through freedom. >> gag. >> stephanie: the president is anti-freedom. >> yes, with extra freedom berries. >> stephanie: yes. mason in ohio. good morning. >> caller: good morning sunshine. >> stephanie: good morning moon shine. >> caller: i got to say i'm really disappointed in all of the news media calling this an epic failure and he is flat lining. it's not like obama got out there stripped down naked and was doing the houla. he had some very valid point. >> stephanie: yeah. i think people thought chris matthews was going to stroke out on the air. >> yeah. >> stephanie: i get it that the expectations were so low for mitt, but it's like david axelrod said, give this a second and as we have we see how it has been so thoroughly fact checked that they are going to use this stuff in ad now. >> caller: yeah, even today, though, most of the networks are still claiming romney is a win. which
'll break down some of the electoral possibilities, which is narrowing for mitt romney and david shuster is in denver as well. the debate will start in about 57 minutes. i'm already buzzing. i love these things. >> jennifer: let's go! let's go! >> cenk: and we'll have analysis afterwards as well. vice president gore let me start with you. it looks like mitt romney is significantly down in the important swing states. does your strategy shift now and if so how? >> i think he has to be aggressive, without seeming to be aggressive and i think it's a tricky act for him to pull off. i think that his supporters realize that he is probably behind as the polls indicate and that he needs to really change some minds tonight. i think in some way there's more pressure on president obama simply because the polls indicate and most people expect that he will win the debate and that's a tough position to be in. but at the same time because governor romney has to do so much more -- he has to change the course of this race tonight, and that puts an enormous amount of pressure on him. so
romney's economic plan. >> that kind of top-down economics, where folks at the top are doing well, so the average person making 3 million bucks is getting a $250,000 tax break, while middle class families are burdened further. >> reporter: romney was determined to go toe to toe. >> but virtually everything he just said about my tax plan is inaccurate. >> all right. go ahead. >> so if the tax plan he described were a tax plan i was asked to support, i would say, absolutely not. >> reporter: the president did get digs in. >> for 18 months, he's been running on this tax plan. and now, five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big, bold idea is, never mind. >> reporter: but he also showed flashes of the kind of testiness sources in both camps feared from their candidates, except obama's was directed a the moderator, not romney. >> the last point i'd make, before -- >> two minutes is up, sir. >> no, i think i had five seconds before you interrupted me, was -- >> reporter: romney did have his own awkward moderator moment. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. i
. governor romney really engaging with him, engaging with the audience. president obama looking down through a lot of the debate. i actually had this memory of 2008 where remember the first debate with obama and john mccain where mccain did not make eye contact through much of the debate with obama. we talked about that a lot. obama not making eye contact with romney a lot. looking down, surprised by romney's strength. and just monot engaged. >> so he was intense. he leaned in. it was like he had a lot of coffee before the debate. and he just was going after the president. my question for you, joe, is why can't he transfer this to the campaign trail? why wouldn't that work? it was great. >> i think that's what everybody said last night. i think he was very comfortable last night talking about facts, talking about information. i don't think -- >> he wasn't explaining a lot of stuff. >> going to chipotle just hanging out with the kids. i'm dead serious. >> i'm talking about speeches and rallies, and there are things people want to hear. i bet you the americans watching last night are the same
. without a doubt. mitt romney put down a strong performance last night and a couple things are behind it. first of all, a solid understanding of business background and regulation en you see that being cheered by certain sectors. the financials standing out especially his comments regarding mortgage loans. there's also a sense that governor romney's success in massachusetts working with a legislature fell 85% democrat but being able to accomplish major things for massachusetts and it has been a number of years. someone suggested four years since we had bipartisan positives out of washington d.c.. given the governor's record the markets would certainly scheerer bipartisan reform as regards to taxes and the fiscal cliff. dave: that is a great point. the fact the we have not seen by partisanship like the president said we were going to see when he started this administration. let's bring heather into the conversation. focusing on this romney bomb do you think it is sustainable -- excuse me? heather, go ahead. is this romney bumped sustainable? >> a great day. definitely it is kind of a romn
now, we're counting down to tonight's presidential debate. mitt romney's motorcade just pulled up at the debate hall. president obama's expected to arrive in denver any minute as well. we'll be talking with top supporters of each candidate. the former new york city mayor rudy giuliani, he'll join us live this hour. also we'll be hearing from both candidates' wives in special cnn interviews. today, by the way, is the obama's 20th wedding anniversary. so what's it like spending the night with the romneys? i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> 34 days from the presidential election but much more importantly right now at least right now we've reached what may be the most decisive night of the 2012 campaign, the first presidential debate at the university of denver. after weeks of downplaying expectations, mitt romney's campaign insiders are finally opening up about what they really think can be accomplished tonight. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta is in denver getting ready to set the scene. jim. >> reporter: wolf, the romney campaign sees the polls m
down, sometimes appearing disengaged. it's not that he didn't try to rip apart romney's economic plan. >> that kind of top-down economics, where folks at the top are doing well, so the average person making 3 million bucks is getting a $250,000 tax break, while middle class families are burdened further. >> reporter: romney was determined to go toe to toe. >> well, but -- >> but virtually everything he just said about my tax plan is inaccurate. so if the tax plan he described were a tax plan i was asked to support, i'd say, absolutely not. >> reporter: the president did get digs in. >> for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan. and now five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big, bold idea is never mind. >> reporter: but he also showed is flashes of the kind of testiness sources in both camps feared from their candidates, except obama's was directed at the moderator, not romney. >> the last point i'd make, before -- >> two minutes is up, sir. >> i think i had five seconds, before you interrupted me -- >> reporter: romney did have his own awkward moderator moment. >
the punches? >> reporter: at a pre-debate rally in denver, romney seemed to down play reports that his campaign has prepped him with zingers to go after the president. >> it's not so much winning or losing or the people themselves, the president and myself, it's about something bigger than that. it will be a conversation with the american people that will span almost an entire month. >> reporter: romney aides say the gop nominee is adjusting debate tactics away from what worked with a handful of opponents on stage to a more one-on-one approach. >> there's one person on stage. it's done three nationally televised head-to-head debates in a general election format. that's been president obama. governor romney hasn't. >> reporter: during the primaries romney demonstrated he can stumble. as he did trying to bet rick perry big money at one debate. >> rick, i'll tell you what, $10,000? $10,000 bet? >> reporter: but romney is no debate lightweight here taking down newt gingrich's idea for a moon colony in florida. >> if i had a business executive come to me and say they wanted to spend a few h
in the polls to bush. he ended up losing by two or three points. romney's only down three points. romney needs to carry -- >> but he didn't win. here's the other thing. the average going back to 68, the average undecided has been 13.5%. right now, you have a small undecided electorate out there. you've had $72 million spent by the super pacs attacking the president. what is mitt romney going to say that $72 million hasn't said about the president? is he going to sing -- >> please, no singing. >> isn't it the truth that voters discount what is said in ads, because they already think it's spined and they trust a little bit more what the candidates say? >> people hate negative ads. >> there's a reason why they keep doing it, because they work. >> here's the bottom line, though. annual one of five are watching it. the persuadable voters are watching "american idol" or "dancing with the stars." >> they're going to hear the news the next day. >> the opinion makers, the people that they talk to around the coffee the day after, you folks who talk about it on television, you're going to tell them who w
are counting down to the first presidential faceoff. president obama, governor mitt romney cramming for their first debate tomorrow night in denver. and new questions about whether the president's health care law could soon be back before the u.s. supreme court. judge andrew napolitano weighs in. >>> and jaw-dropping pictures you won't want to miss. wait until you see what cameras caught when discovery tv intentionally crashed a 727 jet liner in an investigation, where's the safest place for you to sit when you fly? we're going to show you, all "happening now." gregg: hello, everybody, i'm gregg jarrett in for jon scott. jenna: hi, everybody, i'm jenna lee. brand new polling out today giving us a snapshot of how the race for the white house is shaping up on the 'of the first -- on the eve of the first presidential debate. the latest quinnipiac poll showing the president leading among likely voters, and that matters. [laughter] take a look at this poll, this same poll shows a much wider gap among women voters. the president holding a commanding lead, 56-38% among likely women voters
and governor mitt romney hunker down for one last day of prep before the first big presidential debate. what we can expect when both candidates take the stage tomorrow night. we actually have a debate coach who is going to answer all the questions about the secrets of being a good debater. an intense manhunt underway for the person who killed a u.s. border patrol agent right near the spot where agent brian terry was murdered in 2010. the details on that next. gregg: a pennsylvania court blocking voter id law from going into effect right before the election in november, it happened in pennsylvania, and the deputy secretary of state there issuing the following statement just moments ago. quote: we are pleased that today's court decision upholds pennsylvania's voter id law under today's ruling, voter id will be implemented, but on a different time frame. this november all voters will be asked to show photo id when they vote, though it will not be required. this is, essentially, the same voting process we implemented in the spring primary. in the meantime, we are reviewing all legal options. well,
in virginia. he had been down four or five before. the bad news for romney in these three polls is that in ohio, a state that is critical, romney strategists think they have to win florida and ohio to get to 270 electoral votes. he's still down eight percentage points, and what we've seen across these polls is that obama is increasingly competitive with romney on who would do best to handle the economy. but the fact that we've got a little bit of movement nationally and movement in florida and virginia tells me that there's still some play in this electorate, in this contest, and that's the hope for romney going into this debate tonight. >> what do you think happened in florida versus in ohio? because for a while, they were both tracking. i mean, florida by the gallup poll, he was down by nine points, romney was. what happened in florida? >> there was a poll last week that showed florida down nine for romney. i think that's too high. the campaign has begun advertising -- the romney campaign, that is, advertising more heavily in florida than they had been previousism we see in ou
to watch out too. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild, but he's bringing the hammer down on "sesame street," it makes sense. lou: the president was trying to make a joke, but, mr. president, wait a minute. turns out big bird is deserving of considerable public attention. upon further investigation, it appears the last thing the president should be doing is to minimize what's happening to the taxpayer money because of big bird, all his friends like elmo and jim lehrer. the president should be paying attention to the count to help him with the numbers, and the numbers are troubling. on a day in which the congressional budget office announced the 2012 budget deficit came in at $11 trillion for a fourth straight year, turns out our out of control spending includes roughly $450 million given every year to the corporation for public broadcasting, $8 million of that going to, that's right, sesame workshop and big bird. it appears easy to dismiss millions of dollars when the government faces trillion of dollars in debt. the left may be cute with a call to end funding for public b
understand that for someone who support governor romney, it was disappointing that the economy is improving, that that number ticked down, but for the country it was very good news. and i think what it does do is rob governor romney of one of the talking points you heard in the last debate. you know, for months he was running around the country saying the president-- this president's lost jobs. well, no, now we've net gained jobs under this present. dwe need more but we created 5.2 million in the last 31 months. and, obviously, this ticking down to where we were on january of 2009 is a significant milestone. but we have to keep going. our point is we can't go back to the policies that created the mess in the first place. whether he wants to deny it now or not, that is what governor romney is proposing. >> reporter: when bad jobs report comes out or ones that have been relatively weak, members of the president's team have said,un, people's views about the economy are kind of baked into cake. why, if they're not going to react to weak jobs reports -- as a political matter-- people suddenly fe
down, you would be able to tell the winner of the debate. mitt romney always looking at president and we're told that he had been coached in the debating address the president, walk specifically through your plans, point one point two, point three. he stuck to that. mitt romney -- president obama looked down most of the time. even when mitt romney made a joke in the expense. he still kept looking down. it begs a question when was mitt romney the last lump or at least this mitt romney the exraint we're bringing john editor in chief in to the conversation that complaint about mitt romney was that he could not stay on message. that he could not talk about the middle class. he could not talk about jobs, that he could not come off as likable. on every one of those tonight, check, check, check, check. why tonight? >> and begin we shall obviously much more time than we have. it seems to me that he in order to get a performance like this, he has to get himself in a sigh displace in intellectual place. he has to organize his mind and spirit, if you will. and is a say what do i need do. mit
citizen. i would imagine he's union. i would hope he is. and they tracked down one of mitt romney's sanitation workers. let's give a listen to this audio. >> my name is richard hayes. i pick up mitt romney's trash. we're called the invisible people. he doesn't realize -- a big health issue not picking up trash. residents do come out and shake our hands. sometimes they give us hugs and thank us for the job we're doing. tell us we're doing a good job and keep up the good work. picking up 15, 16 times by hand. that takes a toll on your body. when i'm 55, 60 years old my body will be broke down. romney doesn't care about that. >> not to worry about the -- >> john: he doesn't mean picking up 15, 16 tons at once. i'm kind of slow on these things. >> i hope not. >> john: i think he means cumulatively over a day or a week. that's just from ann's side of the week. i don't know why this guy wasn't invited to speak at the democratic convention. it would have been pretty smart. so this is -- i don't know if it is an ad
. the obama campaign says mitt romney's economic plan boils down to a massive tax cut for the wealthiest americans. the romney campaign says, not true. in the next hour, a fair and balanced debate with key members from both sides upon the unemployment rate is down, but is that because americans are down and out and have given up on finding a job? economist ben stein breaks down the number. a helping hand or handout? some claim the government makes it easier for to you get food stamps than to get a job. john stosesle looks at the cost of a welfare state approximate who is footing the bill. canada's cracking down on immigration fraud, promising to revoke citizenship to more than 3,000 people. and there could be more cases on the way. that's one of our most clicked stories. we have more from the newsroom with what you are reading on foxnews.com. >> reporter: candidates -- can district attorney's immigration minister says thens have applied for citizenship and attained it fraudulently. it is believed they paid someone to help prove they were living in canada, even though they were living abr
. >> right now it's down to about 66% in trade obviously suggesting romney got a big boost. >> mini flash crash. >> among our political guests this morning ready to talk about the road to election today, arianna huffington will be our guest host. huffington "post" obviously has a left bent, but it was declaring romney won the debate. ken duberstein will join us, as well. >> i was reading some of your tweets last night, john, and i liked your tweet. i tell you what i took away from the entire debate because i want to let you say it, but i saw what's possible in a life spent without any alcohol. i saw what i could have possibly been -- i saw how i could have possibly been able to talk if i had all the brain cells that i started with. and that was what i came away with. that i just wish in a maybe i had considered that path maybe of being, you negotiation life of sobriety. anyway, what did you think, john? >> well, romney considered that path and he took that path, joe, and he tried to press his case last night. the challenge for him was to come out with the kind of aggression that could sco
far to turn back now. >> you heard the president. it's no day to talk down the economy to score political points. but shadowing the president in virginia, mitt romney waited nine minutes deep into his scintillating stump speech before even mentioning the big news of the day, delivering it like a speech at a funeral. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month, and the unemployment rate, as you know, to this year has come down very, very slowly. of course, even those that have jobs are having tough times. >> okay. but give mr. romney credit because he actually admits the unemployment rate did come down. unlike prominent conservative jack welch who tweeted this morning, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. okay. tuesday he was a ruthless race baiter. yesterday he was a feckless delivery boy. today he's don corleone, and there's more where that came from. congressman west, take it away. >> you are alleging specifically that the president is engaging in a cover-up of the data. you are saying that the adm
's a lot of pressure right now on mitt romney but it also comes down to just an overall theme that we keep bringing up. that he's got to somehow convince americans that he can make their life better. and right now they don't fully buy it. so there's a lot of pressure on him to do that. chris: so interesting. john? >> i think the early voting thing really matters a lot but it doesn't matter as much as people think. the undecided voters at this point are not early voters. the undecided voters, they're undecided this long, they're -- chris: what are they waiting for? >> i think they're waiting to see these debates and again, these are really important moments. the only other thing about the historical trends is they're really important guideposts but no incumbent has been elected with an unemployment rate over 8% and barack obama's on track to get re-elected. things are true until they're not true anymore. >> i think that mitt romney's challenge is enormous. but doable, his people believe, if he can come off as a credible alternative, someone people can live with for four years. because we li
staring down, not making eye contact with governor romney nor the audience. that visual cue it's almost accepting the other guy's making a point you need to deal with as opposed to forcefully kind of staring them down in a pose of reputation. you never saw that with president obama tonight. i thought it was a curiously passive performance, and there's a lot of things that mitt romney said tonight that he's never said before. he said i'm not, there's going to be no fax cuts for upper income earners. no cuts to medicare. those are positions we've not heard from governor romney before. he said a lot of specific things in this debate. he's been criticized for not having specifics. some of the specifics were easily challengeable by the president. the president didn't challenge him on the specifics in any way. and again, i think that's, speaks to him playing it very safe. that four corners offensive, that practice prevent defense and mike is right in the sense governor romney got done what he needed to get done is get voters to give him another look. >> rose: people say the first 15 minutes
to that list. the next half level down is north carolina. clearly, governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia. those are very competitive states right now. all i know is someplace where he does need a significant comeback. fred's points are well-taken. for a lot of voters, the election started last night. if he is going to have a comeback in ohio, it started last night. >> president obama won last time, beating senator mccain by seven points. part of it was 66% of the vote among 18-29-year-old, a large percentage of latino voters, african-americans were like 95% to 4% or something like that. the african-american support is very strong. let's assume parity for this time. as you suggested, the turnout levels among latino voters and, i would add, young voters, is very much questionable. when i go on campuses, i cannot find a pulse. there might be a couple of people behind the table to register people and nobody in front of the table, registering. there is no pulse there. is it safe to say that a seven- point margin becomes six or five or four, ticking turnout down among these two gr
-income americans have seen their income come down by $4,300. this is a tax in and of itself. i'll call it the economy tax. it's been crushing. >> question. why did president obama seem thrown off balance? did he underestimate governor romney, pat buchanan? >> he certainly d. governor romney performed better on substance than any candidate in any presidential debate in history. reagan would have beaten him in style in 1980 but on substance i've never seen anybody better prepared than governor romney. he was on of fence. the real question, why did barack obama, the president, do so badly. john, he didn't come prepared for what he found there. he seemed difident, almost disinterested, sour. when they had the two pictures together he was looking down at his notes and the governor was talking to him as if he was lecturing him. some say he's lost his enthusiasm for the battle. he looked like he was weary of the job. i think it may have been something to do with him having been out on the road for a year saying the same thing. he didn't seem to be intellectually stimulated. >> do you think he
and mitt romney. obama with a slight edge. 49-47%. but also in this survey, it delves down into the expectations game for this debate. what can you tell me about those numbers, peter? >> reporter: despite what chris christie said, and that is sort of another mixed message coming out of the romney campaign, romney is winning the expectations game if you look at the polls. more likely to win the debate, president obama 55%. mitt romney just 31% of likely voters expect him to win the debate. that's a good place to be for him going in there, but like you said, there's a lot of stuff in this poll. sort of mirrors what we've seen in a lot of recent national and state polls. president obama has advantages on a range of issues, however, one thing tilting in romney the direction. interesting numbers in the poll. which candidate are you confident will get the country back ton track economically? president obama, 47%. mitt romney, 51%. now, obama's had an edge on the economy in a lot of recent polls by a narrow one, two-point margin. not that much difference. interesting nonetheless m
the debate prep. pretty light today, really enjoying some down time with romney's grandkids, getting ready before the big night coming up an hour from now. candy. >> thanks, jim. before i toss it back to you, anderson, i'm reminded of a quick conversation i had with george bush when he first ran for president in the year 2000. had a reputation of being a really mean guy. and i asked him, and he said i got that reputation when i was defending my dad during his re-election campaign. so much easier to run than to watch someone love run. i think the pressure tonight certainly on these two men who want to be president, but there might be more pressure on first lady michelle obama and, of course, ann romney as they watch their husbands tonight. anderson. >> really interesting. we're hearing from both women tonight. cnn exclusive, brand new interviews with michelle obama and ann romney, opening up about debate preparations and the pressure on their husbands, first, interview with ann romney, her family calls her the mitt stabilizers, gloria borgeer asked her if that is the role she's playing lead
to rip apart romney's economic plan. >> that kind of top-down economics where folks at the top are doing well, so the average person making $3 million is getting a $250,000 tax break while middle class families are burdened further. >> romney was determined to go toe to toe. >> well, but virtually everything he said about my tax plan is inaccurate. if the tax plan he described were a tax plan i was asked to support, i would say absolutely not. >> the president did get digs in. >> for 18 months he has been running on this tax plan, and now five weeks before the election he is saying that his big bold idea is never mind. >> but he also showed flashes of the kind of testiness sources in both camps feared from their candidates, except obama's was directed at the moderator, not romney. >> the last point i would make before -- >> ten minutes is up, sir. >> i think -- i had five seconds before you interrupted me. was -- >> romney did have his own awkward moderator moment. >> i'm sorry, jim. i'm going to stop this subsidy to pbs. i'm going to stop other things, and i like pbs. i love big bird. i
-- >> about 9% down on the president. >> and up to 26% on governor romney. actually, larry kudlow with us as well. >> maria? >> yes, john? >> i want to say, i think you were right about the president being on the defensive. one of the things that came out of the two conventions is that the democrats, bill clinton helped president obama in this, shifted this from a referendum election on president obama's performance to a choice election. i think this -- the effect was to pull it back to a referendum election and put president obama on the defensive. he's the one with the record. and the american public is not in a great mood right now. >> he has to defend that record. that's what he tried to do tonight. governor romney was much more specific in term of his plans going forward. in terms of job creation, tax reform, even in terms of getting back to economic growth. larry kudlow with us as well. larry, what's your take? >> i thought that this was a tremendous victory for romney. this is a different, different romney than the one at the convention. he was specific and crisp and precise and en
